    The program is implemented by the Entrepreneurship Development Fund (EDF). The only participant of the EDF is the Government of Ukraine represented by the Ministry of Finance of Ukraine, which coordinates all aspects of the Fund's activities.

    To date, under the State Program Affordable Loans at 5-7-9%, the EDF has concluded cooperation agreements with 44 banks.

    It should be noted that in order to prevent a decrease in the volume of lending due to an increase in the NBU bank rate, as well as to facilitate the financing of agricultural commodity producers for the implementation of a complex of autumn field work in 2022, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine adopted on July 29, 2022, Resolution No. 916 "On Amendments to the Procedures Approved by resolutions of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine dated January 24, 2020 No. 28 and dated July 14, 2021 No. 723".
